How have seaside holidays changed?

Alison from Hands On Heritage delivered a fantastic workshop ‘Have Seaside Holidays Changed?’. She brought with her a wealth of resources to help us to respond to this question, including photographs to illustrate the purpose of artefacts during this first hand experience. We began the workshop with a journey on a charabanc. Upon arrival at the seaside we experienced clothing both 100 years ago and 50 years ago- fascinating! Also we learnt about seaside entertainment in the past and how this compares to modern day activities. We were fortunate enough to be able to handle all artefacts with respect, which I know will enhance our understanding of how seaside holidays have changed over the years.
